He doesn't want his fans getting confused...
TMZ reports that Pitbull is suing the E & J Winery & New Amsterdam Spirits Company over a vodka recipe called "The Pit Bull". It consists of 2 parts New Amsterdam vodka, 1/2 part lime juice, 1/2 part grapefruit juice, 2 parts lemon/lime soda.
Pitbull is suing because he claims it is confusing the marketplace, as Pitbull's name has been trademarked since 2000. On top of that, the rapper currently endorses other brands like Voli vodka which promotes a Pitbull drink. He's suing for all of the profits New Amsterdam is making off of his name. He wants the recipe removed from his website.
